AARP National hosted this Access Live event to discuss the latest on AARP’s fight to lower prescription drug prices. This event featured Megan O’Reilly, VP AARP; Leigh Purvis, Health Care Costs and Access, AARP; and David Mitchell, President and Founder, Patients for Affordable Drugs. They discussed what provisions will be the most beneficial for Medicare recipients. There was also discussion about how many drugs will be negotiated by Medicare, what happens with the donut hole in Medicare part D, and since deductibles are going toward out of pocket costs, what will it do to Medicare part D and premium costs.
